Hi PLM Community,
is there a step-by-step description how to add a new component to a LMS Amesim Library?
I have submodel from a colleague and am trying to add this as a new component to a library.
I can add a new component but when I try to add the submodel in Ameset I get stuck.
Solved! Go to Solution.
At this stage I'll answer with a few questions.
What have you received from your colleague? Is it a whole folder? Only a .spe or .sub file?
Also, could you please explain what issues you're facing in Ameset?
Open one of the .spe files with a standard text editor and check the version in which it was developped. This will be indicated in the very first lines of the file.
If that version is posterior to your Amesim/Ameset version. The submodel won't appear in Ameset...
In that case you can:
- upgrade your local Amesim installation
- ask your colleague to send you a library which matches your version
another possibility is that you are trying to attach the submodel to a new component icon which is not done this way. In that case the correct workflow is:
Indeed it is not possible to open the new component icon and then attach the submodel, you have to do it the other way round!
I didn't managed to use my homemade icon this way, how could i do ?
Could I register my component in a custom category ?
Thank you !
first you have to group components you want to set as a new supercomponent.
Afterwards you click on the supercomponent icon or just right-click.
Open the supercomponent and lauch the Open in designer in the Component Icon Tab.
With the Load icon file you can import your icon.
For the final saving into an existing (Amesim) or new (user) library you have to switch to the Category Saving Tab and follow the procedure top-down.
Also as a help you can watch the movie in the LMS Amehelp: Tab: Content -> Quick-Start Movies "Creating a supercomponent" (qthelp://lmsimagine.lab/ame_dir/doc/html/manuals/Videos/Videos-1-1.html)
thank you, i've learned how to register an icon in a category, but i have another question. I'm using alternatively two different computers not on the same network and I would like to transfer a custom component with a hard drive to work on it on AMESet without having to rebuilt it each time. I was thinking it should be easy but i've tried many things and I didn't found a way. It's probably a newbie question, but I'll be glad to have the answer.
you can use the Category path list... in the Menu to select/deselect and link libraries.
So, just copy your library to a new directory and link it. If you already use elements of your library in model you can use the pack functionality.
This will automatically pack all required libraries, data files etc. into an Amesim pack (*.pck). For more information check the Amehelp.
